Culinary Team Leader & Special Projects Coordinator
Roger began working with food in 1980 at his brother’s produce store. Foodservice was never a career he planned, it just happened to be something which he enjoyed and for which he had some natural ability. All of these years later, it looks like it is now part of the plan. In 1996, Roger opened a restaurant in Fairfield, Destinys. This eventually led to the company Destinys Catering and Banquets. In 2010, during the economic turndown, Roger and his wife, Jenn, sold Destinys to Vonderhaar’s Catering. Roger now oversees the culinary division and helps develop new menu items; he also oversees special projects and assists with business development, such as the opening of V’s Café on 7th this past December and Vonderhaar’s involvement with Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park. Roger travels to all divisions and assists wherever necessary. When not working, Roger enjoys spending time with his wife, Jenn, (who oversees the Destinys Catering division of the company) and his daughters, Hannah and Katie. He also enjoys volunteering at church.

Molly is excited to jump into the catering world and use her skills to create and develop great menu items.
